Join The Oratorio Society of Virginia for this beloved Charlottesville tradition and family favorite. Music Director Michael Slon conducts a 90-person chorus composed of some of our community’s finest singers. The concert’s signature piece, Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat is an innovative and exhilarating journey through swift contrasts, alive with freshness and vitality, which embodies youth in light of profound task. This lovely piece is an expression of both joy and humility, and is one of Bach’s most popular vocal works. An accompaniment with full orchestra and five special guest soloists round out what is sure to be a beautiful and heart-lifting performance. The Oratorio chorus will also perform a variety of seasonal selections and will welcome the Children’s Choir of Central Virginia and the First Presbyterian Church Handbell Ensemble. There will even be a little sing-along fun to round out this festive event. Bring your whole family and share in the warmth and magic of an Oratorio Christmas!
“Anyone who doubts the power of community or the magic of the holiday season need only listen as  voices swoop and soar during The Oratorio Society of Virginia’s performance.” (C-VILLE Weekly)
